After a bit of basic review, we began a project-based approach to reviewing previously learned material that allows students to build on vocabulary already learned and add new words and phrases. This first project focused on school; students worked in small groups to either describe Clarksville Middle School or a school of the future. Students showcased their creativity and skills in the language through their presentations.
We also worked on some essential grammatical structures, such as noun-adjective agreement and prepositions of location. Based on some of their written work, we will review the verb me gusta / me gustan and introduce the construction of (s)he or they like [le gusta(n) / les gusta(n)].
Also, in the coming week, we will complete the second review project: La comida saludable (Eating Healthy). Students will work in pairs or individually to design and review a restaurant that serves healthy menu options. We anticipate more of that creativity to emerge with this project!
